Igbo Nation in the wilderness without a Moses

It's really a matter for serious concern that up till now in the political equation of this country,the igbo nation is still gropping in the dark as to what becomes of her fate.it's really a pity that 42years after the end of the civil war,the fate of the igbo nation in the political dispensation of this country still hangs on a balance and at the mercy of the whims and caprices of those who consider themselves more Nigerian than the igbos.It's a matter for urgent attention the position of the igbo man who is only considered good enough for a second fiddle in the pilitical calculation of this country Nigeria.Ah! this is aberration.The igbo nation today is seen as a rudderless people lost at sea without a compass and must feed on the crumbs from the table of those who Adjudge themselves more Nigerian than the igbos.The igbo man is today lying prostrate without a voice in the political agenda of his own country and igbo elites are busy with their business

of boot-licking and sychophancy while this ugly trend goes on unabated.Since after the death of Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe and lately chief chukwuemeka Odimegwu ojukwu,the igbo nation seems to have found herself in the wilderness of Nigerian politics without a moses.I see this recent call by one illustrous son of igbo land chief Orji Uzor Kalu for the igbos to wake from their slumber and strategise for presidency come 2015 as a clarion call to all well meaning igbo elites to rise and take the destiny of the igbo nation in their hands.Remember life never gives you your worth but what you negotiate with it.The Ohaneze Ndi Igbo must rise to its responsibility now and give the igbo nation the required political leadership in the Nigerian political terrain.This is no longer time for political jobbing and unnecessary rhethorics.
